Bootstrapping a Software Company
A Six Day Free Course on Building a Remote Software Startup
Four years ago Heath had the idea for a software that allowed campers to book online.
But he had no coding experience and no idea how to build a tech startup.
Today, Camping Booking has processed over $3M and helped hundreds of campers book RV sites across the continent.
In this "Startup Series" of podcast episodes, I interview Heath on a few of the major things I wanted to know about his business. Things like how to test a pricing model, creating partnership agreements, and why they haven't taken on funding.

Heath and Alyssa Padgett have been living, working and traveling in an RV since their wedding day in May of 2014.
During their first year of marriage, Heath & Alyssa traveled to all 50 states filming a documentary called Hourly America where Heath worked an hourly job in each state while Alyssa filmed the adventure. Their documentary work has been featured on CNN, CBS, Fox, Forbes and has led to consulting work with brands like Chick-fil-A, UPS, and Winnebago.
Together they run HeathandAlyssa.com, one of the most popular RV lifestyle blogs. Heath hosts The RV Entrepreneur Podcast, where he interviews fellow full-time RVers on what it's like running a business while traveling full-time. Heath is the CEO of Campground Booking, a software company he started from their Winnebago, while Alyssa manages their production company, Padgett Creative. They also host an annual conference for nomadic entrepreneurs called The RV Entrepreneur Summit.
